Huron Wetland Management District

Huron Wetland Management District

The public lands of Huron Wetland Management District (WMD), called Waterfowl Production Areas (WPAs), are a part of the National Wildlife Refuge System. National wildlife refuges and WPAs are vitally important to wildlife and people. They provide food, water, cover, and space for hundreds of species of birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, fish, and plants. These lands are managed to benefit endangered species, migratory birds, and other wildlife and to provide places for people to learn about and enjoy wildlife. Huron WMD was established in 1992.

WPAs are open to many public activities year-round. Visitors to WPAs can expect to find a rich variety of plant and animal life. If you have the time, a short walk through a WPA often reveals a fascinating world of wildlife. Birds and mammals native to the prairies can easily be seen. During migration, large numbers and diverse species of birds make WPAs a bird watcher's paradise. Wildlife photographers are more than welcome to take photos of the areas. School groups are encouraged to contact the District staff for educational presentations and tours of the various types of habitats found on WPAs. Hunting, trapping, and fishing is permitted on WPAs in compliance with state laws.

Directions: The Huron WMD office is headquartered in Huron, South Dakota, which is located in the east-central portion of South Dakota. From I-90, follow Highway 37 north to Huron (approx. 50 miles). Highway 37 changes into Dakota Avenue once you are in the Huron city limits. Follow Dakota Avenue to Fourth Street SW and turn west. The District office is located in the Federal Building on the south side of the street. Please contact the District staff for directions to individual WPAs.
